Are they diagnosed as cellulitis or is it found in blood cultures? Staph bacteria are always living on our skin, and even a little opening works for them. They can happen from a shoe rubbing on a foot, where there may not be visible entry wounds.

If you keep getting infections of a specific type (bacterial/viral), it's good to test if your immune system is lacking something specific which makes you unable to mount a normal responce.
